Chaz Frustrated With Disc Golf Game After Getting Beat by Friend Who Just Had Heart Surgery

Disc Golf

A few years back, I started playing disc golf. I have gotten better over time, but my game still seems to need a lot more work. Especially after getting beat by someone who just had heart surgery.

Every weekend, no matter what the weather is like, me and a group of friends and family will pick a course and play a round of disc golf. It doesn’t matter if it’s 30 degrees outside with winds at 30mph, or 70 degrees with a light breeze, we will throw a round either Saturday, Sunday, or both days – most of the time, early in the morning.

One of the people I play with is my friend, Rob, who I’ve been throwing plastic with since I learned how to play the game. Rob has always been a good player, but recently had to have back surgery, and heart surgery. So, it had been a long time since we had thrown a round of disc golf together.

You would think that, after having all this time away from the game because of the surgeries, it would take a while to get back in the swing of things.  But, not for Rob. His first game back, the dude throws a 1 over par against my brother at Cal Young.  That’s not a bad game at all for anyone, much less someone who just had open heart surgery.  The next day, I was able to play a round with Rob, and, you guessed it, Rob beat me.

Now, I’m not what you would call a great player, but I can hold my own most of the time.  It’s my inconsistency that kills my game. Any combination of things can happen.  I’ll have a great drive, but then my approach shot is horrible, I’ll miss an easy putt, or visa versa.  Regardless, you would think I could beat someone that had just had surgery and was not 100%.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m very happy that my friend is doing better after having multiple surgeries. But, come on, man. If I can’t beat someone like that, then I have to be pretty bad, right? That is a rhetorical question.

I know, it’s just a game, and I have many more chances to play and to improve my game, but I want to win every time. Is that too much to ask?
